    All Points East Festival 2018

    I see they played Rings Of Saturn for the first time! Nice.

    I'd love to read some reviews. πŸ™‚ What were the highlights (and disappointments)?

    2019 Headliners

    Au contraire, my friend. This setlist looks tailor made for festivals. A greatest hits set (Cave style ofc). I'll be seeing Nick Cave alongside AM (and NiN plus Byrne!) at Werchter in July, and it looks like Cave's set will be more crowd pleasing and energetic than AM's.

    2019 Headliners

    Nick Cave definitely much bigger then he was in 2013. I'd even go as far as saying he pretty much doubled his fanbase, due to his excellent live shows. In Belgium he sold out the Sportpaleis (a Wembley Arena sized arena) in under an hour. To compare: the likes of QOTSA or The Killers haven't even managed to sell out that place. I think he's a proper headliner nowadays, and given the current setlist I think he'll just continue his winning streak in terms of winning people over in a live setting. HOWEVER... Glasto may just be one step to high for Cave and Company. I'd sure like to see it happen, but I'm pretty sure Cave isn't mainstream enough for this.

    All Points East Festival 2018

    Oh really? I only saw some great-looking Instagram clips and pretty much every tweet about her show was very positive. I'm seeing her in July (stoked) and I really like that last album, as I think it's her best work in years. But hearing that the new stuff doesn't come off well live kinda scares me. Arisen My Senses seems like the perfect opener. And thinking about hearing Losss or The Gate makes me really curious.

    Arctic Monkeys 2019

    High energy? While I like those AM tracks, these tunes were actually the more quiet, slower paced moments during the show when I saw them in 2014.

    Pukkelpop 2018

    I think Lowlands gets more praise because of the acts they haven't booked. I mean: Oscar and Bazart on the same lineup, again, could be a big turnoff for a lot of people. That plus the fact that Lowlands has 'avoided' Imagine Dragons and Travis Scott. And I think PkP lacks a name like Patti Smith (or De La Soul): someone who's been in the game for a long time and has created a bit of a legacy over the years. Pukkelpop consistently books very young acts aimed at a young audience.

    Nick Cave

    The upcoming festival tour hasn't started yet, so these setlists aren't representable. In fact, these Q&A shows are acoustic affaire, so it's logical that majority of songs aren't upbeat.

    Oh sorry my bad! I mistaked a fake clashfinder for the real one. Too bad then... Although 1h30 is still a headliner show lenght and it's going to be a fantastic one. 😊

    So BjΓΆrk only has 1h15 playtime? That's not a lot. But Nick Cave getting 2 hours is sweeeet.

    Arctic Monkeys 2019

    This video made me cringe. By far the weakest track on the album.

    The Nick Cave day is almost sold out.

    All Points East Festival 2018

    Damn, that Nick Cave day has a stellar lineup. St Vincent (new show looks so good) and Courtney. Psychedelic Furs is also very nice. Ending the day with an epic show by the Cavemeister. I would've loved be there. 'Too bad' I'm seeing Thom Yorke that day, otherwise this would've been worth a trip to the UK for me.

    Inmusic Festival 2018

    Thankfully that day has the best headliner. ;-) It's basically Nick Cave and company. Although I've head very good things about St Vincent's 2018 show.

    Rock Werchter 2018

    That's gonna be a GREAT evening.

    Mad Cool 2018

    They played much more, no? I see they played 7-8 songs from the Humbug sessions at festivals like Reading and Pukkelpop in 2009. In 2014 they played around 8-9 AM songs each set. I'm guessing we'll get around 6-7 songs from the new album in a festival set this year. Plus 4-ish AM tracks and a few older ones (can see IBTYLGOTD, Brianstorm, Shalalala, Cornerstone and Crying Lightning being played every time). AM normally isn't a typical 'crowd pleasing' band, they'll do whatever they like.

    Mad Cool 2018

    They're the Arctic Monkeys, of course they'll play a lot of their latest record live. They always do. Remember the Humbug shows, where 1/3rd of the setlist consisted of that album?

    Rock Werchter 2018

    And what about NIN? That's a great band! πŸ˜‰ Mine would be: 1. Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 2. Gorillaz 3. Jack White 4. NIN 5. Anderson. Paak 6. David Byrne 7. Queens Of The Stone Age 8. The Breeders 9. The Killers 10. Arctic Monkeys / Fever Ray Still don't know what to do with that last clash though. 😬
  20. lighthouse

    Arctic Monkeys 2019

    Think that list might be a bit optimistic though πŸ˜‰. Only 3 AM songs? And I think we can count on at least 7 new ones. I also can't see how WTSGD would fit in the current set, stylistically.

    So... did we already do a definitieve top 10 acts we'd like to see?

    Open'er 2018

    Seeing Nick Cave being placed in the smaller names burns my eyes. Is Opener literally the only fest this year where's he's not 'headlining'?
  23. lighthouse

    Arctic Monkeys 2019

    I really think they'll play around 7 of the new tracks each show. It's a very AM thing to do. For instance: they played 7 tracks of the 'divisive' Humbug at Reading in 2009. And around 9 AM tracks during most shows of the AM-tour.
  24. lighthouse

    Rock Werchter 2018

    Well, last time they played Werchter their setlist consisted of 9 AM songs, so I guess this time around they'll also play a big part of the new album. I'm guessing 7-ish songs from TBH+C, 5-ish AM songs and some older stuff. It seems like they try to find older songs that fit the new 'crooner style', like Hellcat Spangled Shalalala, Cornerstone, One For The Road, 505 and Snap Out Of It. Really curious about the dynamic of these shows. Guess I'll be a slower paced but sultry and atmospheric live show. 😊 AM always focuses very heavily on the new album. I remember their Humbug gigs where they played that album almost in its entirety.

    Pukkelpop 2018

    I'm feeling you. Thursday is pretty good, but I surely won't be going 3 days... Even a small-ish 'older' act like De La Soul seemed too much to ask for, or Belgian (not too expensive) band dEUS, after their return.
